"This is the saddest story," the narrator notes of his friend Edward Ashburham's life. A superb soldier and the perfect English gentleman, the Ashburham has one fatal flaw with regard to affairs of love. Ford weaves a brilliant tale-long recognized as one of the masterpieces of twentieth century fiction-in which nothing is quite what it seems, including the narrator's telling of the tale. The Saddest Story was the original title, but with the onset of WW I at the time of initial publication (1915), the publishers asked for a new title

The march of literature : from Confucius' day to our own by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

32 editions published between 1938 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 900-page survey of world literature, "From Confucius' Day to Our Own" (as the subtitle reads), was the last book written by Ford Madox Ford, one of the seminal figures of the modernist period. Written for general readers rather than scholars and first published in 1938, The March of Literature is a working novelist's view of what is valuable in literature, and why. Convinced that scholars and teachers give a false sense of literature, Ford brings alive the pleasures of reading by writing about books he is passionate about." "Beginning at the beginning - with ancient Egyptian and Chinese literature and the Bible - Ford works his way through classical literature, the writings of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, continuing up to the major writers of his own day like Ezra Pound, Henry James, and Joseph Conrad." "With his encyclopedic reading and expertise in the techniques of writing, Ford is a reliable and entertaining guide. Ford also includes a chapter on publishers and booksellers, noting the key roles they play in literature's existence." "Novelist Alexander Theroux (Darconville's Cat, An Adultery) has written an insightful introduction for this reissue, the first time this monumental book has been made available in paperback."--Jacket

The English novel, from the earliest days to the death of Joseph Conrad by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

60 editions published between 1928 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all Ford Madox Ford's critical works, The English Novel (first published in 1930) is his most satisfying. He wrote it while travelling: memory plays a large part. Our guide - a major innovative novelist of the century - takes us on a tour of the key literary form of the age, from its birth to his own time." "Ford understands the novel, its development and potential. His radical view of nineteenth-century fiction and his advocacy of Flaubert and Conrad are persuasive. His association with Conrad makes the passages on the author of Nostromo (to which he contributed) especially compelling." "We are offered 'suggestions not dictates'. Ford espouses no orthodoxy: he urges a fresh reading of the best work in our tradition, with pointers in unexpected directions. Seventy years after it was written, The English Novel remains compulsively readable."--Jacket

A cross-genre evocation of a writer's life in the Mediterranean, this account documents the happy years Ford Madox Ford spent living in the South of France with his young artist lover, Biala. Blending fiction, history, memoir, travel, and cookery writing, this tome charmingly evokes Ford and Biala's ramshackle, bohemian life in their villa on the Mediterranean coast. From social encounters with Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse to the delights of growing vegetables, this spontaneous and entertaining book is a true love letter to the Provençal lifestyle

Ford Madox Ford and America by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The controversial British writer Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) is increasingly recognized as a major presence in early twentieth-century literature. This series of International Ford Madox Ford Studies was founded to reflect the recent resurgence of interest in him. Each volume is based upon a particular theme or issue; and relates aspects of Ford's work, life, and contacts, to broader concerns of his time. Ford is best-known for his fiction, especially The Good Soldier, long considered a modernist masterpiece; and Parade's End, which Anthony Burgess described as 'the finest novel about the First World War', Samuel Hynes has called 'the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman', and which has been adapted by Tom Stoppard for the BBC and HBO. Ford's America, like the other places he wrote about extensively such as England or France, is a place of the imagination as much as the real place in which he lived and travelled. This volume is the first extended treatment of Ford's lifelong contacts with American literature and culture. It combines contributions from British and American experts on Ford and Modernism. It has five closely inter-connected sections which display, between them, the range of Ford's creative relationships with American writers and American territory. The first explores the transatlantic dimension of Ford's modernism, from his involvement with Americans like James and Pound in Britain before the war, through the Paris days among the Americans in the transatlantic review circle such as Hemingway and Stein, to his time in America in the 20s and 30s, and the American care for his reputation after his death. The second section focuses on New York, and the publishing world portrayed in Ford's only novel set mainly in the US, When the Wicked Man . A third section, discussing culture, politics, and journalism in his writing of the 1930s, is followed by two examples of his commentary on contemporary American culture, both published here for the first time. The final section juxtaposes two examples of the many American writers who have paid tribute to Ford: an essay tracking Robert Lowell's regular recollections of his encounters with him; and Mary Gordon's celebration of his life with the Polish-American painter Janice Biala. The volume also contains fourteen illustrations, including artwork by Biala and photographs of Ford
It was the nightingale by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

24 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ford describes his encounters with Conrad, Hemingway, Proust, and Joyce, among other writers, with an infectious energy that animates every page of this compelling memoir. This comprehensive new edition seeks to redress the fact that his autobiographical writing remains largely unrecognized. Through this volume, his literary life is made available for the first time since 1984. Written with the generosity, punch, and flair that characterize Ford's novels, it employs a subtle and flexible rhetoric of narrative that fuses the genres of fiction and memoir. Ultimately, however, it tells a story of rebirth, in which the process of literary creation becomes an affirmation of life itself."
